Irish singer Sinead O’Connor, best known for her haunting single “Nothing Compares 2 U” and that episode of Saturday Night Live where she ripped up a picture of the Pope, threatened to commit suicide in a letter posted on Facebook this past Sunday.

Update: Sinead O’Connor Lashes Out at Family in Another Bizarre Facebook Post

In the letter, O’Connor talks about suffering “a horrific set of betrayals” from her family and even went as far to say she has “taken an overdose.”

“There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name. If I wasn’t posting this, my kids and family wouldn’t even find out.”

According to (via Billboard), Sinead has since been found and is receiving medical attention from Irish police.
